Operation Backpack Food Drive End

April 30, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

ArtFusion 19464 is proud to partner once again with Operation Backpack to host a food drive for the month of April.  Operation Backpack provides local hungry students with much needed food for the weekend. There are many homeless and chronically hungry students in our area, and together we can help them succeed by addressing their hunger.

True to Life Ministries (TTLM) runs Operation Backpack and works with individuals and organizations like GSP to gather donated food and supplies. Volunteers use these items to fill backpacks distributed to qualifying students at the end
of each week. The backpacks protect the students’  confidentiality, and they are discretely returned on Mondays so the process can start over.

Donations can be dropped off at 254 E. High St. during normal business hours (Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm and Saturday 10am-3pm). We will have a collection box at the front of the store until the end of April. Please check the list for approved items.

Pre-Approved  Shopping List

Tuna To-Go Mac & Cheese Apple Sauce Spaghettios/Ravioli Vegetable Beef Soup Chicken & Dumplings Chicken & Noodle Soup

Fruit Cups Granola Bars/Fruit Bars Pop-Tarts Goldfish Water Gatorade Pudding

 All items should be sized  for a single individual  and ready to eat  with no cooking required.
Items should be easy to open without a can opener. Products containing peanuts will not be distributed.
